Flamenco guitar Sobrinos de Domingo Esteso 1974

This flamenco guitar was made by the master luthier Domingo Esteso´s nephews in the emblematic workshop in 7 Gravina Street. This workshop was owned by Faustino and Mariano Conde. Lots of great performers have been in this workshop. For example, Paco de Lucía, Melchor de Marchena, Niño Ricardo, Cepero, Pepe Habichuela, and so many others.

This flamenco guitar belongs to a reduced number of these instruments made in that time. The best woods, along with a down-to-detail making, resulted in a top quality instrument, particularly hard to find nowadays. Is made of excellent woods, impossible to obtain nowadays. Straight-grained Indian rosewood with breathtakingly beautiful shades, as well as canadian cedar top, also with a straight and even grain endorse the quality of this guitar with plenty of quality and character, typical of Hermanos Conde in that time.

The sound of this guitar is excellent and a very accentuated flamenco character. The basses are unbelievably strong and deep, the trebles are sweet and clear, with an unmatchable sustain and projection. The harmonics it releases are truly magic. It is definitely a perfect sound, which makes us understand the respect and admiration that this firm gets from the guitar world.

The tension is medium, very comfortable for both hands, due to the reduced height of strings in the fingerboard.

The condition of this guitar is excellent and completly original, without any cracks or repairs.
